Hi ozo

Thanks for your reply:)
atropine is actually an antagonist for muscarinic receptor.. not for nicotinic receptor....
atropine is partly right = 1/3 of the answer for the first two questions...

Now the last part of the question: how the nicotinic receptors and muscarinic receptors work in the prefrontal cortex??

Thanks....
